Restorative Neurology of Spinal Cord Injury

Milan R. Dimitrijevic, Byron A. Kakulas, W. Barry McKay, and Gerta Vrbova


Following injury or disease, neural circuitry can be altered to varying degrees leading to highly individualized characteristics that may or may not resemble original function. In addition, lost or partially damaged circuits and the effects of biological recovery processes coupled with learned compensatory strategies create a new neuroanatomy with capabilities that are often not functional or may interfere with daily life. To date, the majority of approaches used to treat neurological dysfunction have focused on the replacement of lost or damaged function, usually through the suppression of su ... More
